    @ blutos cousin, IMHO I think the average user who knows little to nothing about computers are going to use whatever came as the default browser. That is unless someone else helps them.

    I do not like FF at all, but I will always keep the browser a customer prefers.

    I agree.. he's assuming that the average user would know how to install third party software.. that's not likely in most cases. Nor should they have to.

    It always seemed to want a plugin or something. I haven't used it in a while. I remember after install the first thing it would do was crash. Downloading something in Chrome is so easy. You just download, and it appears at the bottom of the browser. You can choose to do whatever with it. In FF it is hidden at the top somewhere. I always have a difficult time finding it, and the options are not good. Chrome is also much quicker, and its UI is nice to the eyes.

    This is true. IE and Edge are good browsers and for someone who doesn't know a lot about computers they are perfect.

    The way I look at it is when I get Erin a laptop I would have to give here some lessons on how to use it and I would have to install a third party browser. She would have no idea on how to get this done,

    I think the main reason I like Firefox and Pale Moon is because they are as close to Netscape as you can get. If you ever decide to try Firefox again the default location for downloads is in your user Downloads folder.

    I've been using Cyberfox and I really like it,, for me it works better than FF.

    I taught my wife how to start the computer, start her games and how to shut it off. Everything else I have to do it. This works out perfectly. She's happy and that makes me happy.
